Finance and Benefits

In addition to the routine functions of receipts and payouts, your Finance and Administration Team serves as a resource for local churches in the areas of local church budgets and finances, property issues, employee benefits, clergy taxes, information technology and various kinds of insurance. The decades of experience represented in our office has given us experience in many situations, beyond mere finance and administration. If we don’t know the answer, we can probably refer you to a resource that does.
